Ruby Walsh: They think at Seven Barrows that SON OF CAMAS is absolutely ‘chucked in’ and you would be mad to go against that. I did think Topofthecotswolds ran okay here the last day behind Does He Know, who won at Cheltenham yesterday. I think that victory gives Topofthecotswolds a better chance.

Frank Hickey: SON OF CAMAS looks nicely handicapped off 133 and a wind operation can help him return to winning ways.

Paddy Power: I narrowed it down to Shinobi, who made it all at Wincanton which was pretty impressive, and SON OF CAMAS who beat King Roland when they ran at Newbury. He was then behind Envoi Allen as well so that is top-class form and he could be very well handicapped.

Matt Chapman: CAPTAIN TOM CAT destroyed the field at this track last time. He’s up 6lb but if in the same sort of form he’s going to be hard to stop again.

Mick Fitzgerald: SON OF CAMAS‘ form is very strong and I wouldn’t put anyone off backing him. He looks amazing and off a mark of 133 he’s really dangerous.

Timeform: TOPOFTHECOTSWORLDS ran a fine race in a decent C&D novice hurdle last months and seems to be sure to give it another good go on this switch to handicaps.
